Josh Pritchard is stepping up his training after a frustrating summer.

And boss Peter Taylor likes what he sees.

Pritchard injured himself on a running machine and that ruled him out of all of Gillingham’s pre-season matches.

“He has trained for the last two days with us and we know what a very good player we have got,” said Taylor, who signed Pritchard on a free transfer.

“We are pleased he has joined in with it and he has got a smile on his face.

“He has been a right grumpy so and so because he has been frustrated at not joining in but he has trained twice this week with us, he’s had two good days.”

Former Manchester United trainee Pritchard, 21, signed a two-year-deal with the Gills following the midfielder’s release by Fulham.
